Our Teachers – Sean Pietras
Guitar, Ukulele, and Songwriting Teacher
Sean is a passionate and confident guitar teacher, vocal coach, and singer/songwriter. These are two qualities that go a long way when instilling musical values in students. When asked what teaching means to him, Sean replied “Having the opportunity to share my gifts and enrich the lives of others, has become the most fulfilling element of my life.” Sean’s love for the performing arts has been evident since his first lead role onstage as a fifth grader. Participating actively in his school’s orchestra and choirs, it was at the age of 12 that his true love was realized, when he received his first guitar… After years of rigorous study, dedicated practice, and hundreds of stages, Sean began sharing his unique style as a guitar instructor and vocal coach at age 27.
He never looked back. Some of his past students have gone on to attend the Peabody Conservatory, and Berklee College Music; as well as record and produce their own original music. We brought Sean on to the Naptown Sings and Plays! team not only to teach guitar and ukulele, but to guide students interested in writing songs. Sean is out there gigging, and sharing his own songs with the world on the regular. He has shared the studio and stage with a ton of great acts. From playing BB King’s Blues Lounge in Nashville with Marcell and the Truth, to solo appearances at SXSW in Austin; his music has allowed for some very special experiences. His real-world experience, paired with his passion for teaching, is a perfect combo for our budding singer-songwriters of all ages, here at the studio. You’ll see for yourselves after just one lesson.
